The Annual Talbot Informatics Symposium
Named for professor, dean, and informatics pioneer Dr. Richard Talbot, DVM, PhD., the Talbot Veterinary Informatics Symposium began in 1995 at the annual AVMA Convention. In 2016, the Talbot Symposium moved to its new home at Fetch Central (then the CVC) in Kansas City, held annually in August. Members have the chance to interact with other Fetch attendees at our AVI booth and engage in active discussions with fellow members at the symposium and over BBQ.
We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2017, selected Talbot Talks will also be held at The Fetch East in Virginia Beach in May and Fetch West in San Diego in December, as part of a new track: Informatics in General Practice!
Speak at Talbot
Veterinary clinical informatics is a rapidly evolving science that blends information technology, communications, social and behavioral science, and veterinary medicine to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
We invite speakers interested in sharing their knowledge with a diverse audience to apply to lecture or participate in a panel discussion at the Annual Talbot Informatics Symposium. Some speakers may be asked to give their talk at the Fetch San Diego or Fetch Virginia Beach following their August presentation(s). The annual call for speakers is announced in late fall.
If you or your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact an Executive Board member for more information. Your support will not only help to advance animal health care, but allow veterinarians to lead our profession from within to shape our own future. We look forward to hearing from you!
